Summary This chapter is concerned with education as a factor in shaping life opportunities.  Education affects, and is affected by, individual and collective health and well-being.  It is now well established that the health and well-being of students impacts on their educational experience and outcomes, and that those experiences and outcomes impact on students' occupational futures, their future health and well-being and their level of participation as citizens.  Policy makers and practitioners are incresingly attentive to the relationship between education and health because of evidence highlighting the cyclical relationship between the economic and social conttext of schools, poor health and the well-being of students, and educational under-acheivement.
